    True but Dutch biners or small carabiners can be deployed without them touching the bark.

    Yep, works just fine but can be a bummer at time when you have those short-on-patience days due to its setup and adjusting.

    May wear the strap a little quicker not sure.

    It's a matter of convenience, IMHO. I started out running the strap through the loop. I now have carabiners as it is easier to put up/take down with them. If I were worried about weight, I'd probably use Dutch clips. I may change to them anyway.

    Glad to here I am not the only one setting mine up like that. I like the thought of not having to use clips or biners.
    Thought it may wear the straps a little quicker but they are cheap so not a big problem.

    Just make sure you sew the loop well. There's no point buying 1600lb webbing and having the stitching in the loop tear apart with the stress.
